XV Olympic Winter Games Organizing Committee - Come Together In Calgary

Well, here's a random tape from the shelves at Hot Wax. What? Who? Why? These are all questions we have. In general, but also specifically about this tape. We haven't been able to figure out who the authors/artists behind this is - all we know is that this tune was dubbed the official theme of the 1988 Winter Olympics. Says the Canadian Encyclopedia:

The official theme song 'Come Together in Calgary,' first recorded in 1981, was re-recorded in 1988 and incorporated into the film score of Calgary 88: Soon the Glory Begins. The LP Dream on the Horizon: A Tribute to the Olympic Spirit featured Rik Emmet of Triumph, Liona Boyd, and Alex Lifeson of Rush, and was produced by Keith Elshaw (Chartwell WSC-331).

That doesn't really help us. Are these three versions the re-recorded versions or the 1981 versions? Who knows. 

Ah, well - relive the glory here.
